I've been thinking about getting a SLK 32 AMG as a daily driver. I drive
about a mile to work, so I really don't put a lot of miles on my cars.
My current daily driver is Chrysler 300M. My "garage queen" car that I
bring out on the weekend (only when the sun is shining) is a Dodge Viper
RT/10. I race an F-5 in the SCCA on the weekends, so I've got this little
horsepower to weight ratio thing that lead me to the SLK AMG. I told my
wife I thought I would sell the Viper if I bought the SLK, but she nixed
selling the Viper, so I get to have another toy in the stable.
Inasmuch as miles are not that big a deal for me, I'll probably buy a used
A couple of questions:
Are there any model years of the SLK 32 AMG I should absolutely stay away
What range of miles do problems typically start showing up in this model?
Anything special I should look at or have inspected to make sure I'm not
getting a car that's been rode hard and put up wet?
What sort of problems develop with this car?
Any likes or dislikes?
